The Difference between a Serious Relationship and a Fling ...

So you're dating someone new, and you really like them.

After a while, it may become clear that this is shaping up to be a long-term deal.

But until this happens, you may be unsure about where it's going.

And you may think you're in it for the long term while the guy you're dating sees it just as a fling.

How can you tell if what you have is going to develop into a serious relationship, or if it's just a fling …?2

1. He Makes Seeing You a Priority

It's fine for a couple to spend time apart, in fact it's healthy for you to have your own interests.

But your partner should make seeing you a priority at least some of the time.

If he'd always rather see a game with his friends than go out with you, then he's really not that enthused about seeing you - and it's possible that he's just using you to pass the time.

Sadly , I don't think it's about " being hurt " by the guy when you realize you didn't mean anything , but how stupid and embarrassed you feel after wards

I used to think feeling anxious was just "butterflies", and men who made me feel nauseous were "exciting". Now I know those gut feelings are my intuition, which is never wrong. It's normal to feel a little excited around an attractive love prospect, but I'm careful now not to confuse excitement with toxic men.

I was seeing a guy it was kind of long distance anyways that's a long story but suddenly he stopped talking to me and immediately after he started posting pictures with another girl really hurt me bcs I honestly thought we had something special or at least important enough for there to be a conversation before it ends anyways I cut all ties with him and he sends me a random "hey" message I replied with "hi..." Bcs I didn't want to seem bitter but I didn't want him to think shit was all gravy
